Red Galalith cylindrical beads accent the chrome chain links. This piece reminds me of the work of Jakob Bengel.

- ArchivesThis lapis and chrome necklace in a 1930s German Machine Age design was probably made by Jakob Bengel. It has glass beads separated by decorative chrome links and a center Galalith(?) bead with chrome end caps. The same piece in other colors has been attributed to Bengel by a British expert. (This maker’s jewelry was never signed.) This necklace closes with a spring-ring clasp, which may be a replacement (it is brass in color). The center bead has a minor flaw that probably occurred during manufacture. This small imperfection does not detract from the beauty or wearability of this jewel.
